The FOX sitcom star's split news comes after Deschanel was photographed cozying up to a new guy last month on the set of her upcoming movie, Rock the Kasbah. The actress stepped out again with the same dark-haired stranger, who's been identified by E! News as Jacob Pechenik—a producer on her latest film—last weekend for a lunch date.

Deschanel, 34, and Linden began dating back in June 2012, shortly after her split from ex-husband Ben Gibbard, the lead vocalist of Death Cab for Cutie.

Linden, a screenwriter who's worked on movies like Dear John and 10 Years, was described by one insider as "a really nice guy." Added the same source: "He's funny, and a little geeky… he's into her!"

One thing that Linden probably liked about his famous ex-girlfriend? "She doesn’t take herself too seriously," designer Tommy Hilfiger told Entertainment Weekly in May. "She lives her life with a sense of humor."
